Teaching and Supervisory Responsibilities

Bryan teaches business economics courses for postgraduates (both MBA and MSc) and post-experience executive development students. He tends to specialise in teaching students about the broader macro-economic and international economic environments that affect organisations.

Administrative Responsibilities

Bryan was director of studies for the full-time MBA programme from 2004 to 2011. From 1997 to 2001 he was responsible for undergraduate courses at the School of Management, as associate dean. He served on various university committees that deal with teaching quality. Bryan has also acted as adviser on education matters to various professional accounting bodies and been an external examiner for undergraduate courses at a number of UK universities.


Before opting for semi-retirement in Autumn 2011 Bryan was senior lecturer in managerial economics, which provided him with the opportunity to pursue his professional interests in teaching, learning and curriculum development. Over forty years of experience in higher education have served only to heighten his enthusiasm for communicating with students and for exploring the business applications of economics. He happily accepted the post of Honorary Visiting Fellow in Managerial Economics in 2011 and continues to teach MBA and other post-experience students.
